I’m not exactly sure what I was expecting when I agreed to review Max Lucado’s “Outlive Your Life”. Having read and reviewed Lucado’s books before, I knew that I would be in for a treat, but this book definitely came along at the right time for me.
In “Outlive Your Life”, Lucado expresses the ability that each of us have to leave a legacy, or to have impact beyond our days on earth. Through reading fables and scripture, the reader is encouraged with ways to make their lives matter beyond the here and now,
As someone who sometimes suffers from having a short attention span, I appreciated that the chapters were short. However, the lack in length of a chapter certainly didn’t impact the meaning that was provided. Each chapter packed a punch, leaving me wondering what was I doing now to ensure that I outlive my life.
I haven’t felt so moved to be in sync with God’s plan while reading a book since I read Rick Warren’s “Purpose Driven Life”. I recommend this book to all who desire to leave a legacy.
